While Radiohead‘s upcoming ninth album could arrive any moment now (you never know when or via what obscure method), the band announced their first shows since 2012.

They’re confirmed as headliners for three festivals abroad this year: Primavera Sound in Spain, Nos Alive in Portugal and OpenAir St. Gallen in Switzerland. Other bands announced for Primavera Sound include LCD Soundsystem, Sigur Ros, PJ Harvey and Animal Collective.

A press release from Primavera Sound says the festival in early June will feature “the presentation of the new album by the British band Radiohead,” but it’s unclear if the band will perform any of the material before that.

Consequence of Sound reports that a source close to Radiohead confirmed the band will announce a summer tour in support of the new album.

Earlier this month, the online rumor mill revved over news that Radiohead had registered a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP – which is worth noting because the band also set up companies before they surprise released their last two albums: 2007’s In Rainbows and 2011’s The King of Limbs. And Radiohead have definitely been working on the new album for a while and photographed in the studio back in the summer.
